Special Program Notes
This year we are doing something different - we are swapping the nights of our banquet dinner and welcome reception! Our annual awards banquet and pre-dinner reception with our sponsors will be held Wednesday, October 30. Our welcome reception will be held on Thursday, October 31 with a special Halloween theme. You will not want to miss either of these special events this year.
We are also holding the final general session on day one (Wednesday) at the State Capitol. Join the Honorable Mike Gipson and a team of presenters for the 3:30 p.m. Wednesday general session in the Capitol - this will be a very unique experience!
This year the Conference is going high tech - CV Strategies is sponsoring our mobile Conference app!
The program planning team is busy finalizing another great program. Sessions will be interactive, informative and value-added for Commissioners, staff and others. We will have an all-star cast of speakers including LAFCo Commissioners, staff, a variety of subject matter experts and state elected and agency officials. You will see topics listed on the UPDATED Conference Announcement or you can access the UPDATED DRAFT program listing. Please note this is a DRAFT and it is subject to change.
We are planning to take a tour of the Port of West Sacramento and learn about the Port operations and the very unique relationship between the Port and the City of West Sacramento. We have also requested (awaiting confirmation) to tour the Farmers Rice Cooperative's milling and manufacturing facility located directly across the street from the Port. We will also enjoy several guest speakers and a farm-to-fork lunch at the newly opened Sacramento Fire Fighter's Museum. Look for details coming soon.
We invite you to consider a partnership with CALAFCO. Our sponsorship packages deliver wide-reaching exposure that will help you achieve your industry goals. Our Conference is a one-of-a-kind forum that brings together LAFCo representatives from across the state to discuss and address some of California's most compelling issues. Our attendees have an opportunity to interact with about 300 LAFCo commissioners, which include elected officials such as county supervisors, city council members, special district directors and appointed members of the public and LAFCo staff. This unique networking environment has the potential to cultivate long-lasting and constructive relationships that are relevant to California's thoughtful growth and sustainability. There are many Sponsorship opportunities available. For details, download the Sponsor invitation letter and the full Sponsorship packet.
